The inspiring Scandinavian chain has added to its roster with a new location at the National Library.

The opening of the new National Library brought thousands of visitors to tour the new premises, as well as discover the new café Njörd.

Founded in Luxembourg six years ago, the small chain provides Scandinavian inspired cuisine with a focus on healthy and eco-friendly dishes.

In the new café at the library, visitors can choose from refrigerated dishes to take away, such as salads (quinoa, smoked salmon, poached eggs or "crunchy red" with beetroot, carrots, cranberries and red endives, or Danish beef, jalapeno and bergamot), bagels, soups and meals in jars.

Visitors can also enjoy more leisurely table service meals, with a daily menu of three dishes, fish, meat or vegetarian for 15 euros. This week, the dishes on offer were lasagna with sun vegetables, a trickle of crayfish, lobster sauce and linguini with dill or pork with cranberries, fricassee of celery with hazelnuts and rosemary.

A Scandinavian menu would not be complete without Swedish meatballs and red cabbage, or the Danish equivalent of tapas, the smorrebrod of open sandwiches..

At weekends, the café offers brunch with a savoury and sweet buffet, in a Nordic style but with a twist.

The café opens at 7.30am until 8pm, allowing nearby employees to make use of its offerings.
